Here is Richard's address to future preachers:

"Dear Future Preacher,
Since you are a merchant of truth, my best advice to you is to be true in all that you do.
Be true to the Word of God. It is your friend, your source, your companion and your
master. Do not stand behind it, negelecting you duty as its interpreter. Do not stand
in front of it so that it is obscured from view. Stand beside it and point out its beauty,
intricacy and depth to all who will hear.
Be true to the people of God. Understand them, accept them, tolerate them and love
them. You must interpret then at least as much as you do the scripture - and it will be
a harder job, for they are ever changing! Unless you seek with all your heart to understand
them, you will be unable to build a bridge from scripture into their lives which
will bear the weight of eternal truth.
Be true to the Spirit of God. Allow him to ruffle you, to inflate your tired soul or deflate
your puffy ego. Listen to him in the quietnes of the study and heed him in the
pulpit too. His way, even when unpredicatble, will always be best.
Be true to yourself. God chose you to be a preacher, not some better or more glamorous
version of yourself. All the dents and bashes and quirks you have picked up along
the way are precious, like the patina on a piece of beautiful old furniture - they add to
your value as a preacher.
Preaching is a high privilege and a noble calling. Treat it with respect and you will have
a ringside seat at the weekly theatre of miracles where God turns rocks into diamonds
and introduces forever into today." - Richard Littledale
